    Just because Covid restrictions aren’t compulsory doesn’t mean they’re not necessarily.
    People are still dying out there……… and the numbers are on the rise again.
    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷
    October focus:
    maintain weight < 140 (I have been maintaining since July 2019)
    Work on improving stamina, strength, flexibility, which may impact the scale
    I liked this so much I'm borrowing it.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!

    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating, exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take
    time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    @pezhed you had me at Weird Al!!! My DH teases me relentlessly about the serious crush I have on him since I saw him live. Glad you are squeezing that into your busy schedule😁
